In this week’s Monday Market Highlights, Investment Analyst Jerram Lindsay discusses last week’s economic data release, with most numbers coming in softer than expected. He covers the low consumer confidence reading, an ISM manufacturing survey, and reports on the US job market and labour productivity. Closer to home, Jerram looks into Australian retail sales which declined – underlying retail spending is now the weakest 6-month period the ASB has on record outside of the pandemic. In equity news, he covers the tail end of the US Q1 reporting season including Amazon and Apple. And finally he looks into Woolworths and Coles.
